This book is about a leopard named Lennie. He worked at a circus, but the circus train had a wreck. Lennie thought that he was lost. It turned out that he was on a farm, and he had never been on a farm before. Will Lennie find a way to make this new place a good home?
I liked my book because I love animals and the leopard is one of my favorite animals. My favorite part in the story is when Lennie the Leopard made good friends on the farm. I love the characters! The characters are so funny! There are really good drawings, too! I liked them because they looked like real animals.
I think that lots of people would like this book because if you like animals you would like this book. This book is also about friendship. I think that 1st graders would like this book and also 2nd graders. I think that the part a 1st grader would like is the part when the badger comes along and sees Lennie and tries to scare Lennie. Lennie doesn't get scared, though. He starts to laugh!
